The Labour Court in Johannesburg has reserved judgement in the application of the United National Transport Union, to amend its Head of Argument to provide more clarity as to why the Union argues an unfair labour practice in the equal work, equal pay court case against Bombela, the operator of the Gautrain.
Bombela was once again opposing that UNTU make amendments to its statements in this case and the objections had to be argued before a Judge to make a ruling.
Pieter Greyling, Deputy General Secretary says Bombela is using its constant objections to UNTU’s applications for amendments to statements as a delaying tactic to frustrate the Union and to waste legal costs.
“UNTU will patiently await the outcome of the judgement and take matters from there,” says Greyling.
